Recipe from a friend. Without instant pudding mix. Kid approved! Prep time does not include freezing time.
- In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, and milk.
- Cook on medium until thick.
- Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter and stir until combined.
- Place in molds and freeze until firm.
These are quite the yummy little treat! The only problem I had was I kept waiting for the ingredients to "thicken" as stated in the directions. Mine never really thickened even after 15 minutes of simmering. It would coat the back of a spoon but I was expecting it to be more like a pudding consistency just before it sets. No worries, I poured it into the popsicle molds and they turned out great. Thx for sharing your recipe.
We loved these babies. Great chocolate flavors and such a refreshing treat when you want something quick when it's hot. I doubled the batch and made some up in ice cube trays too, so the kids could get them themselves and stick em in a bowl to have while watching TV. Thanks!
My kids love popsicles and fudgesicles so I am always looking for good recipes. I came across this one and had to try them. The kids thought they were great and didn't complain that they were "homemade". They are so much cheaper to make than buy, this is a great penny pincher! Have made often throughout the summer and will continue to make them. They are so easy to whip up! Thanks for sharing!
